Updating index analyzer with html char strip filter - blocking?

Hello, I have an index with around 11,000,000 documents in it. I need to update the index analyzer to include a html strip character filter.

I know I have to close the index first, apply the new analyzer, then open the index, but I'm wondering what the actual downtime will be for this process.

When I re-open the index after applying the new analyzer, will all 11,000,000 documents need to be re-indexed? Will this be a blocking operation or cause spikes in resource usage?

Or are there any other alternatives, could I just add the html strip char filter to a search analyzer with the same effect but without having to close/re-open the index?
